Chapter 18: The young lady, alone and in anguish.
After a meeting with Mitsuhiko Okaya.
Rushia Kaida returned to her room.
It was a terribly large Japanese room, but the furniture was western style.
She approaches the canopied bed and dives into it with a swoop.
She flapped her arms and legs.
She was insanely curious.
“What does she mean by living together? I can’t believe he is living with such a beautiful girl.”
The beautiful girl who was working at the coffee shop on her way home from a meeting today said that.
She tried to ask for more details, but the fact that she was working in a store prevented her from going any further.
“I’m curious. Is that woman really living with him? What is it about Okaya? Ugh ～～～～～～!”
And then, it happened.
“Excuse me, young lady.”
A man’s voice came from behind the sliding door.
She stood up quickly, adjusted her messy hair and clothes, and sat down on the bed.
“Niekawa. Come in.”
The man who opened the fusuma and entered was a large man who looked like the Terminator.
He was a muscular man wearing sunglasses.
” Young lady, I’ve been looking into it!”
“You’ve been looking into ……?”
Rushia looked at the big man with half a face.
He approaches Rushia with a happy expression on his face.
He takes out a thick file from the case in his hand.
“I thought you’d be interested in this, so this [Saburo Niekawa], has been looking into it since then.”
“B-but ……, no no! You can’t do that!”
Pessin and Rushia waved away the file that Niekawa was holding.
“What’s wrong? You must be wondering about that girl, right? That girl?”
“Gu ……, that’s …….”
Saburo picked up the file and sat down next to Rushia.
“I, Saburo Niekawa, have come here with the sole intention of supporting Lady Ryuko’s love.”
“……,Aren’t you having some fun?”
“Absolutely not! Come on, young lady, take a look. It says where he lives and about that girl.”
“Uu….Uuu……No, but…..that’s……I can’t”
Rushia got up and shook her head.
“This is an invasion of privacy. And you know it. I don’t want to use Kaida’s power against him.”
“Eh. But you’re curious, right? It’s alright?”
Saburo flipped through the documents.
“Heh! Such a discovery!”
“What! Cohabitation …… yeah, and that kind……!”
As mentioned earlier, Rushia did not want to wield the power of her own house.
But Saburo had stirred her up, and she couldn’t help but want to see what was in the documents.
“‘Come on, young lady, what you want is right there, right?”
That’s when it happened.
“Saburo, what are you doing?”
“Kee, ……! Sis!”
When the door opened, there was a woman in a tall suit.
A woman with long hair in a ponytail and a model figure.
She is Saburo’s sister, [Ichika Niekawa]
When Ichika appeared, Saburo’s face turned pale.
“No, nothing! I’m not doing anything, Ichika nee-chan!”
“Ara, Is that so.”
As Ichika approached, she took Saburo by the arm and lifted him lightly.
She performed a splendid Ippon-bakari and then applied a joint technique to her brother who was lying on the ground.
” Young lady, I know you don’t like it.”
“Ouch! Ouch! Stop it, sister!”
“I’m sorry, young lady. My idiot brother did something he shouldn’t have.”
“Ah, no. …… Mm! It was not good to act arbitrarily, but he was thinking of me. I’ll forgive him.”
Ichika released her brother.
“And……? What are you going to do with that file?”
Ichika said, pointing to the survey form.
” You should have seen it. What are you waiting for, sister?”
“Saburo, you don’t understand girls’ hearts too well. That’s why you’re not popular.”
With the Niekawa sister at her side, Rushia pondered.
The information she wants is in here.
But looking at it is like forcing herself to peek into the private life of the man she loves.
“What should I do…..?”
“It is not for us servants to interfere in such matters.”
Ichika was right.
It would be a mistake to leave such an important decision to others.
“But one thing is for sure, if you take your time, the girl will take the man you love. You don’t want that, do you?”
“You have to take action. The other person is free now. Isn’t this the time to attack?”
“That’s right, girl. Unlike harem romances, there’s only one man you can marry. Well, if the young lady wants to, there’s plenty of room for a reverse harem…..Kefue”
Ichika stomps on Saburo’s back as he lies on the ground.
“Then how about this? How about I take the young lady to Okaya-sama’s house?”
“? What do you mean?”
” Look, there must have been some revisions made to the manuscript at the meeting today, right? If so, you will take the revised manuscript to Okaya’s house.”
“I see, huh. But, Sis, I’m supposed to fax the manuscript.”
“You can just go to the house and say that the fax machine is broken or something. Just say that his boss gave you the address, and you’ll be fine.”
“”I-I see. ……!””
Saburo and Rushia nodded as if they were impressed.
“In other words, the young lady will not see the contents of the background check. I, who know the address, will take the young lady to Okaya-sama’s house. Then, the young lady can ask what she wants to hear to them in person.”
“I see, then it won’t be an invasion of privacy that the young lady is concerned about. As expected of sister!”
Ichika’s suggestion was reasonable and realistic.
But that didn’t stop Rushia from hesitating.
In short, she is going to go to the house of the man she loves by herself.
Not only was she embarrassed, but she also wondered if it would bother him to go there so suddenly.
” Young lady.”
Ichika grabbed her hand.
“Please make a choice that you do not regret.”
“That’s right, young lady! You’ll definitely regret it if you run away now!”
If she runs away here and loses her beloved Okaya, …… she will regret it for the rest of her life.
“Ichika, Saburo. I am going to …… Okaya’s house.”
The Niekawa’s nodded as they smiled.
“I’ll be back. I’m going to go smash up the fax machine for a bit!”
“You really don’t have to destroy it, you idiot.”
Rushia sat down in front of her study desk and took out a piece of paper.
Tsu…..Ichika puts down a new stack of manuscript paper.
“You’ll be eating here, right? I’ll bring you a sandwich or something later.”
” Yeah, that’d be great. Oh, …… that’s right. My grandfather is coming for dinner today ……. I have to eat with him. ……”
“I’ll take care of that as well, so please hurry up and finish your manuscript, young lady.”
Rushia looked up at the sister and gave her a smile.
” Thank you, Ichika. And Saburo, too.”
“It’s okay! I’m doing this for the young lady!”
“Don’t worry about it. Well, good luck, young lady.”
The Niekawa’s left the room.
“Sis, you’re beautiful and caring, why can’t you get married? Ah,I see. It’s because you’re a muscle gorilla…….fugyuuuu!”
“Who’s the female bob sap? Ah?”
“…… I didn’t say that.”
She grabbed her brother by the scruff of the neck and walked out of the room.
Alone in the quiet room, Rushia closes her eyes.
She slaps her cheek and gets into the spirit.
“Okay! Wait for me, Okaya!”
…… After that, Rushia finished the manuscript in an amazingly fast three days.
With that, she went to Okaya’s house.
TL: I really like Saburo.

Well, the first goal would be to stop being seen as a child by him. The fight over him can’t really begin until someone overcomes that part.
Thanks a lot for the translation.

………Yep……as i thought her family is aware of the twins living there(…..as well the reason they left home…..). But why did her grand-father didn’t told her? Maybe he didn’t went that far……nah, there must have been another reason…
Well, now Rushia-chan will want to see firs-hand the power level the twins have as well how to surpass them….or maybe cooperate and make Okaya owner of a harem.

“It’s because you’re a muscle gorilla”
“Who’s a female Bob Sapp”
I had to check the raws to confirm but wow what’s with the casual racism. Bob Sapp is a black wrestler/actor famous in Japan but to reference him right after being called a gorilla is uncalled for.

“When the bran opened, there was a woman in a tall suit.”
Bran? Excuse me, what does that mean in this context? Isn’t that a food term related to grain? I can’t even guess what was the originally intended word in its place.
